Quotes From "Bright Lights, Big Ass"

"I yearn to be a woman of more depth, but I'm not so fond of the path I'd need to follow to get there."
"Really? If I could hate my trainer? That would be ideal. I'd prefer to despise this person with the fire of ten thousand suns. So when I walk - nay, crawl - out of here at the end of my workouts, I want to lull myself to sleep by picturing my very talented and inspirational trainer getting hit by a bus. A bus that I am driving."
"When did the cell phone become a license to be rude? And why must I be subjected to your personal conversations?"

(Personally, I think it's payback; the Swedes are pissed that we aren't buying ABBA albums anymore.)"
"The thing about mass transportation is that it transports the masses."
